To the chants of U.S.A. our women's soccer team
Celebrated on the field, achievement of their dream:
FIFA World Cup Champions... Again! That's number 3,
But the most exciting plays were ones I didn't see.
We were stuck at traffic lights that I could not avoid.
Only 15 minutes late. Already, Carli Lloyd
Scored 2 goals... We barely made it home to see her third!
Had to wait until the half to see what else occured.
It was clear before the game was more than halfway done
That Japan could not catch up... That we'd already won.
'though I'm disappointed that I missed it, I'll survive.
After all, I got to see the celebrations live.
